I think we would be remiss to not say that these shows offer people the promise of instant success. But the idea of being a drumer or an opera singer for example, and not wanting to put in the years of training, sacrifice and study that it requires to really cultivate the art seems a bit short-sided. It's like those studetns who want to study drums but don't want to buy a book, to do any exercises and don't want listen to what anyone else says. They don't understand why you just can't make them sound like David Silveria or Brann Dailor. "Sorry, I forgot my magic wand today." :)
